        Don’t bother
        I have no idea why this is highly rated, I would’ve much more preferred a nice dinner. The bus had no air conditioning to transport us over 45 min in 90 degree weather, the co-op with the argan demonstration was underwhelming, and the food was bland and dry. The only entertaining part of the night was the fire show. We met at the meeting spot at 4:15, however the sun didn’t set until 7. We sat around in the heat for hours. Lastly drop of the dropped one family at their hotel and brought the rest of us back to the pick up destination. This was during holiday, an extremely busy time so it was difficult to get home. And we were dropped off at 11pm far exceeding the 5 hour time listed Overall, I would not recommend.

        Average meal - not in a real palace
        Booked via booking.com. Sceptical due to the reviews. Taxi arrived on time and took us to our destination which was well coordinated. Food was average (starter was the best thing we ate). Entertainment was good but you were expected to tip each entertainer. Not a palace a restaurant called Palace. An average evening which you could get at any restaurant. Topped the waiters but the boss took the money. Not rushing back.

        Hugely disappointing!!
        Booked this experience with booking.com. Fashion Hotel organised the taxi which took us to the wrong destination and was adamant that it was the correct place. On return to hotel they phoned the palace and re organised for us to go the next night using our voucher. We arrived the next night and they would not honour the booking. Not interested in helping us in any way. Yet again, 4 Scottish grannies left stranded!!

        Awful and Not worth the time or the money
        Booked this place for the family and sure enough I should’ve read the reviews before booking. What an absolute nightmare. From the moment we arrived the staff did everything in their power to fleece us of money. They demand it. The food was absolutely awful. We were fed like children at a third world boarding school. The staff are so rude. The animals are badly treated it was sad to watch. They use those animals to get maximum profit in whichever way. As for the entertainment, what can I say it was a slippery slope from the beginning and it only went south thereafter. If you can please avoid at all costs.

        40th birthday dinner/celebration
        I would definitely give my experience a 5 out of 5. It was amazing. I went with my friends and family for my 40th birthday. The hospitality was excellent from beginning to end. I would definitely recommend this. Thank you to the members of staff that made my birthday very special you were all lovely 😍 👌

        Overall fun
        It was awesome to watch the horsemen charge and fire their muskets. It gives you some sense of what battles felt like in the day. For me, that is what made the show worthwhile. The dinner itself was good. My girlfriend found out that when you order wine it is by the bottle. It is not possible to get by the glass. Bring your tip money if you choose to dance.

        Very positive experience. Efficient pick up and drop off. Guides were polite and safe. A great experience and a good way to see some of the more rural areas

        Although A Long Day, A Great Day
        Read so many reviews, stating its a long day, saying not worth it, we thought it was. We left at 7am and got back about 8.30pm. Plenty of stops, great to say we have travelled through the Atlas Mountains with great sights. Ait Ben Haddou is far better in real life than in the photos or YouTube videos. We had an hour here which was just enough time to look around. Then went to the film studios and had lunch at the onsite Hotel 'Oscars' before having a guided tour around the film sets. Lunch was included, very average and basic we all shared (6 of us plus guide) I think what we paid for the drinks paid for the meal. A can of coke 40 Dirham about £3.60 and Bottle of Local Beer £8. This is why I have scored 4 out of 5. The Studios were a real good insight into how sets are created, we really found it interesting, the high light was discovering that the Yemen scenes from Prison Break Season 5 were filmed here and in the town. Really glad we did it.

        Great way to explore the highlights of the city on your first day!
        A great start to our holiday, fantastic introduction to the city of Marrakech. We really recommend to do it on your first days upon arrival. Serious company, pick up place was perfect and very good on time, we appreciated seeing the Menara Gardens, Bahia Palace, and other important monuments. Was easy moving around in the morning by minivan deluxe, a stop for lunch, and afternoon was walking at the center and the "souk" was very well organized and the guide was very professional. Thanks Gray Line Morocco!

        Impresive mosque and an nice walk thru the corniche
        If you are in Rabat, is worth a visit to Casablanca. Take a train, the railway stations are in the center of both cities. Is cheap (from 3,5€ return ticket) and it takes 60 or 90 minutes. walk thru the center of the city, take a taxi (the big ones takes up to five people, agree the price before) to the corniche (seaside) visit the mosque (impresive!!) and take a short walk to Ricks cafe (outside). Walk a little more and cross thru the Medina, you can eat in the street . walk a little more and you will be back in the railway station . We visit the city for much less money.

        Breathtaking
        This is a long day trip, a lot of which is sitting in the car, so bring some audio books. It is well worth the time and quite beautiful. Along the trip to and past the Atlas mountains, the landscape becomes more barren and arid, as it turns into a desert. The vistas stretch out as far as the eye can see and it is mesmerizing and can easily induce one into a blissful trance. You will have a chance to walk in the ancient ksar of Ait Ben Haddou for an entire hour, exploring at your own leisure. Afterwards you eat lunch at a movie studio, where they take you on set and you get to see the city of Meereen from Game of Thrones! Turns out a lot of movies and TV shows are filmed in Morocco. Afterward there is a bonus ksar at Ouarzazate to visit, before the long drive home. The driver was also the tour guide and he did a great job

        Amazing adventure
        My friend and I booked a trip via Ceetiz; the provided us with Gray Line. We chose the zip lining in the Atlas Mountains... fantastic! Our driver Mohammed collected us from our hotel, gave us private transfer to the mountains and a little tour on the way. He took us to an argan oil factory on the way, this was really cool, we helped out making the oil and had a little tour. When we arrived we completed an hours hike, we were given the option of shorter or longer whichever we wanted. Our tour guide was great, he was really talkative and friendly. We completed 2 obstacles in the mountains and then 4 zip wires, absolutely fantastic! the guides were great, taking loads of photos and videos for us. They made us laugh and feel at ease. We had a lunch afterwards which was included, we were given olives with brean and oil to start, then salad, then chicken tagine then fruit with water. Food was amazing, I would definitely recommend this trip!

      Not worth it at all. Spent the entire time driving around in a car. Had a few stops to look at the sites. Not much to see in Casablanca. Just go to Hassan II on your own.
      The worst part was being taken to an authentic Moroccan art display... you mean a rug shop where they try to get you to buy overpriced rugs. Not worth it at all. The driver was great though.

      One best landmark to see and visit in Casablanca "The mosque Hassan II" Non Muslims can visit it and allowed to take pictures. Med V Square was excellent after I explored several old medinas (crowded). The mosque Hassan II was our highlight in Casablanca

      Thank you for taking the time to rate our Tour and Services. Your feedback is highly appreciated. The Hassan II mosque is indeed the only mosque in all of Morocco where non Muslim can visit inside. We hope to see you again in Morocco and in our Tours. Salh
